I am doing a show Oct 16 and the host wants to do a tea party theme. Any suggestions as what to make. I thought brownie bites, perfitiole (sp) puffs, but I don't know. Any suggestions would be greatly apperciated.

Mini Quiches, there are several different recipes in the cookbooks. And what about little cucumber sandwiches or something like that. I know that there are some recipes with sliced cucumber sandwiches just can't think of what exactly they are... I have a slight headache and can't quite focus, but you can do a search on the CC or maybe someone else will remember what I'm talking about.

Here are a few recipes that I found on CC. I also remembered the Clubhouse Chicken Squares, that would be a good tea party kind of recipe, I think... Unless she's thinking more of the sweet tea party kind of recipes, then none of these would work! Sorry! Anything mini and finger size....


Cucumber Party Canapes
Ingredients:
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
1 teaspoon lemon zest

1 cucumber
1 loaf Canape French Bread, sliced
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

Directions:

1. In Small Batter Bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream, dill weed and lemon zest; mix well. Cut cucumber crosswise into 3 equal sections. Peel, seed and coarsely chop one cucumber section. Add to cream cheese mixture; mix gently. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
2. Thinly slice remaining cucumber sections using Ultimate Slice & Grate; cut each slice in half. Slice canape bread into eighteen 1/2-inch slices using Serrated Bread Knife.
3. To assemble canapes, place 1 scoop cream cheese mixture onto each bread slice using Small Scoop, spreading evenly. Top each canape with 1 cucumber slice and 1 tomato half. Serve immediately.

Scones are easy to make! You could do sweet or savory scones, depending onwhat kind of tea you are hosting.

I did a tea party the other day with my dc. We ended up making lemon tea cakes to go with our "English" tea. PC has a mini lemon cake recipe that it does in the prep bowls. For simplicity sake and because my ds didn't want lemon slices on his cake, we did a non PC lemon tea cake with a light glaze recipe that I found on the web. It was wonderful!!! Even my dh raved about it. It was supposed to be made in a loaf pan, but I did them in the 12-cup muffin pan instead. If I had had the silicone floral cupcake pan which just arrived today (Yeah!!), I would have done them in that. If you are wanting bite size, you could easily make them in the Deluxe Mini Muffin Pan. Just a thought.

Blessings,
Tracy
